If you're in the southern hemisphere, your colourist might start suggesting some subtle highlights or even a caramel hue around this time of year when we begin to emerge from winter.

"People don't really care about the time of year," Symonds says. "Before last season, you might think to save a bleached hue for high summer. Now, many people want to do the opposite, like darker, more natural colour for summer — and punch it up platinum now."
